A Cornish copper mine which went on sale in July has been sold for "well in excess" of its £100,000 price tag.
Some of the buildings are Grade II listed
Tywarnhale Mine, near Pothtowan, is a former 19th century copper mine which comes with a number of mine buildings.
The land, which stretches to 42 acres, is designated as a site of special scientific interest.
Agents Miller Commercial say the site has been bought by a company which makes organic skincare products, which will use it as its headquarters.
'Number of offers'
A spokesman for the Truro-based agents said: "Much interest was shown by conservation groups. However, having sought offers in excess of £100,000, a number were received well in excess of this sum."
The property currently forms part of Cornwall's application as a World Heritage Site for Cornish Mining and some of the buildings are Grade II listed.
George Allnutt, from Spiezia Organics, said: "It will be made available to local historical groups as well as others with an interest in holistic and homeopathic remedies."
